Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Black had a rook-odd (!), yet he managed to capture 1 whole pawn in 27 moves + has been mated efficiently. Poor. Very - ummm - poor.
Apr-15-07  ganstaman: I think Romberg had the completely wrong strategy. If you have an extra rook, you want to make it actually do something! This means opening up files or pushing for an endgame (clear the trash out of the rooks' way).

Closing the game up like this was a terrible decision. The other reason this is so is that it allowed Tarrasch to enjoy the space advantage (at least with the initiative, so his space advantage really showed). This meant that Romberg was more cramped and less able to really use his pieces was Tarrasch could bring his whole army right to the black king. Notice how cut off and disconnected black's pieces were -- it's as if he's the one actually giving odds.

Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: Hmm. This is a good Tarrasch game. Romberg got Tarrasched.
Jan-14-09  WhiteRook48: Seems like Tarrasch gives Romberg Rook Odds a lot.
May-02-14  tivrfoa: <ganstaman: I think Romberg had the completely wrong strategy. If you have an extra rook...> I was "when did he lose the rook?" he started without one!! lol
